A mixture favored over the competitors for its particular blend of fine fescues.  Our Cut Less Low Grow Fescue is comprised 100% of fine fescues, containing no annual ryegrass or other more, vertical growing species added only to lower the cost of the mix.  With more mild winters, species like annual ryegrass can persist from season to season – ruining the desired wispy grassland/Scottish Links aesthetic.Cut Less is a LA’s dream, perfect for low impact design while keeping interest in the landscape.  It is the answer to a homeowners most challenging sites – on a steep slope or above a boulder wall where mowing isn’t possible.  Under a grove of trees that suck up sun, water and nutrients.  Contact us for more design and use ideas!

In Cut Less, we also strive to use 60% or more of cultivars proven to be of a higher turf quality under lower inputs.  Both TWCA and A-List varieties are tested by independent organizations to require lower use of water, chemical and fertility inputs to retain desired turf quality.  That helps you save budgetary maintenance dollars and reduces that turfs environmental impact while providing all the benefits of greenspace of more hard surfaces.

Seeding Rate Information:

When Cut Less is seeded at a low rate of 1 to 3 pounds per 1000 square feet, the mature stand will “seed out” more, producing vertical, stemmy seed heads that also are desired as the add interest to the site.  We are working on obtaining a worthy picture of this look.  It is one desired by many golf courses – the mixture is used in many “in-play” rough areas allowing a more playable ball because of the decreased turf density.  Seeded at a higher rate you’ll achieve the more widely designed for look in the corresponding pictures.
